In Roundtable Session: 52.084-21 - Leveraging Underutilized Resources to Improve Schools
This is a part of on-going research exploring the impact of school librarians on student achievement across all grade 3-8 public schools in New York State outside of New York City. The models examine school library impact on student English and math achievement, while taking account of prior academic achievement, a wide range of student demographic variables (such as gender, special education status, limited-English proficiency, minority status, free/reduced lunch participation), and building level characteristics (size, discipline climate, district accountability status, and overall district financial capacity).
Results show a statistically significant impact on ELA Common Core achievement, after controlling for a wide range of other student and school covariates. Similar results were not seen for Common Core math achievement results.
